Roland Johnson

10 p.m. Friday, October 12. BB's Jazz, Blues & Soups, 700 South Broadway.

Roland Johnson is a true entertainer. This charismatic local soul performer can be found any week during regular gigs at Beale on Broadway, BB's Jazz, Blues & Soups and Hammerstone's. Usually backed by the Voodoo Blues Band, Johnson steps out onstage ready to entertain. He's smooth, cool, dancing and snapping as he sings classics from Solomon Burke and Tyrone Davis. He's also always dressed to impress, his slick style complementing the Stax-esque brass blasting at his side. Johnson's impassioned performances are a big hit with blues fans; he wins them over by the hundreds at events like the Big Muddy Blues Festival and the Old Webster Jazz & Blues Festival.

True Love: Some call Johnson the St. Louis Otis Redding. Is there a greater compliment?
